Storyline

2,000 years ago the human world was ruled over by the demon world. However, one of the demons, the legendary dark knight Sparda, awoke to justice and defeating the evil emperor Mundus sealed the demon world away from the human world. He then sealed his own darkest powers away (fearing he would become a threat to the humans himself) and assumed a human form, living among the humans, and for 2000 years he preserved the harmony of the worlds. Eventually Sparda fell in love with a human woman called Eva and had twin half blood sons, Dante and Vergil. However, Sparda died, and shortly after, Eva was killed in a demon attack that separated the two sons. Hating the demons for taking away his mother and his brother from him, Dante becomes a demon hunter and continues his fathers work, seeking revenge. 20 years on, Dante is called to Mallet island on a job, and comes face to face with an ancient enemy of his fathers.

Devil May Cry rocks, baby!
2 June 2002 | by Studx50See all my reviews

Devil May Cry is as much as a stylish thriller as it is an intense action game. There are many graphical nuances that enhance the experience as well, such as entering a mirror and having this alternate world appear blurry. Numerous attacks are portrayed with ultra fast and smooth animations, contributing if nothing else to how much fun the game is to play and how much fun these battles are to be involved in. Dante can also hover in the air after a jump and fire his handguns, gaining even more bonus points in the 'damn that's really cool' category.

Unfortunately the game ends a bit quickly. The game can easily be completed in under ten hours, longer only if the player wants to complete the game on all the difficulty settings and earn the highest ranking on each mission. Otherwise, you're looking at a game that will satisfy most with only a rental. However, it's the type of game everyone should have in their collection. It's one of the few elite games that have graced the PS2 so far.

Devil May Cry Rocks. 10/10
